It’s a question I often get so let’s address everyone’s favourite topic: romance!
As a writer, I tend to include it as a secondary element that completes the plot; it’s rarely my focus. Thus at first I was a little hesitant to use common visual novel labels for Chronotopia as the whole genre relies heavily on the exploration of romantic relationships. But in the end it’s still an integral part of the story as Kionna will indeed be able to pursue in a fairly traditional way three different love interests: her childhood friend Nahima (GirlxGirl), the mysterious Fairy (GirlxGirl) and the « true Prince » whose identity has not been revealed (GirlxBoy).
I can’t say much about the true Prince but rest assured he’s a complete cinnamon roll~

I must say that I had not really planned to post on the devblog again any time soon! Given that the development of Chronotopia: Second Skin monopolizes all of my free time, silence ended up settling. I could have certainly given news more regularly but this is already an exercice I engage in every month, be it on Kickstarter or through the team’s newsletter, and I didn’t want the devblog to merely be a copy-paste of what I already write there.
Happy Holidays everyone! In order to properly bring a close to the year, here’s the traditional look back on Träumendes Mädchen’s activities. After a more than stormy period in 2017, was 2018 more merciful? Find out right away!
I recently came across an article that claimed that English visual novel had reached a peak since mid 2017 and were now entering a new era, thanks to increasing popularity and developers eager to push the boundaries of the medium. Well, I hate to be that person but as someone who has been in the community long enough to remember its short history, I have to say that this couldn’t possibly be farther from the truth. Let me take you a few years back and I think you’ll understand!
